Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"Chandor brings this intrigue to a marvelously slow boil....There are a couple of exciting set pieces, including a superb chase sequence..."
Mike D'Angelo (29 Dec 2014, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"[S]triking and unforgettable....Nearly every scene in A MOST VIOLENT YEAR is pitch perfect."
Richard Roeper (15 Jan 2015, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Stylish, sophisticated, simmering crime and character drama with Shakespearean dimension and bravura performances."
Angie Errigo (16 Jan 2015, )
Los Angeles Times
"A MOST VIOLENT YEAR is the most welcome kind of throwback. It brings to mind the fierce New York-based productions of Sidney Lumet in particular but also the whole notion of character-driven, the-clock-is-ticking melodramas in general."
Kenneth Turan (30 Dec 2014, )
New York Times
"J. C. Chandor, the writer and director of this pulpy, meaty, altogether terrific new film, and Bradford Young, its supremely talented director of photography, succeed in giving this beat-up version of the city both historical credibility and expressive power."
A. O. Scott (31 Dec 2014, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "Chandor's film ultimately has its own vibe...which is no small feat considering the heavy legacy it bears. The look and performances carry it. "
Matt Zoller Seitz (31 Dec 2014, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Chastain is killer good, shooting off her mouth like a Brooklyn bombshell....And Isaac is an implosive powerhouse."
Peter Travers (30 Dec 2014, )
Sight and Sound
"Isaac is singularly skilled at portraying characters at once attractive and offputting."
Philip Kemp (1 Feb 2015, )
Total Film
"[A]nother expertly controlled drama. A sombre crimer that resists easy thrills, investing instead in grit, intelligence and complex characterisation."
Matt Glasby (19 Jan 2015, )
USA Today
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] revelation: meticulously constructed, brilliantly acted, suspenseful and sharply written."
Claudia Puig (24 Dec 2014, )
Washington Post
"[A]n absorbing urban drama about honor, ambition, loyalty and ethical calculations, all set against the improbably action-packed backdrop of the home heating oil industry."
(15 Jan 2015, )
